that i think a lot would like to write but has no guts to do it. we'll talk about it in a little while. >> there's a lot more going on including more in ferguson. >> new unrest and chaos in that area. police were backed up by members of missouri's national guard. but the troops kept their distance from the protesters. this as attorney general eric holder prepares to travel to ferguson to meet with investigators and community leaders. we'll talk to michael brown's parents in a moment, but first ron allen is in ferguson once again. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you. police say they were targeted by a small criminal element using the protest as cover. they made 31 arrests. there is a new twist. many of the suspects were from out of town from as far away as california and new york. >> get on the ground! >> reporter: police rush in, a strong show of force. firing tear gas to disperse a huge crowd. making dozens of arrests.
police cracked down, they say, when their units came under attack. >> i listened over the radio and heard the screams of those officers who were under gunfire. we can't have that. >> reporter: police have tried yet another tactic with the national guard as backup, more officers on foot, trying to give the officers a designated space. these are the rules tonight. you can march a quarter mile in each direction. this is a stretch of road where some of the worst violence has happened during the past few days. the protesters' loudest demand, arrest officer darren wilson who shot and killed michael brown. >> why hasn't he been processed like anybody else? that's all we're asking, man. if he's so innocent, what do we have to be afraid of the law for? he is the law! >> reporter: earlier brown's family released the results of a autopsy they commissioned. six gunshot wounds.
two to the head. >> all these gunshot wounds were survivable except for the one in the top of the head that went through the brain. >> reporter: while brown's family claims he was surrendering, some say he was assaulting the officer. it may take months whether to decide to charge the officer. >> we don't want to do it quickly. we want it to be very thorough. >> reporter: and now sybrina fulton is offering support to the family. writing i wish i had a word of automatic comfort, but i don't. meanwhile, police here in ferguson fight an uphill battle to keep the peace. and police seem very focused on gathering as much intelligence as they can about the protests. one reason they may have arrested so many people. a lot of names and phone numbers to follow up on. >> thank you very much. lesley mcspadden and michael
brown sr. join us now with their attorney benjamin crump. my condolences on the loss of your son. >> thank you. >> tenth straight night of violence in ferguson. the national guard is there now and still the violence ended just hours ago. ms. mcspadden, what will bring peace to the streets of ferguson? >> justice. justice will bring peace, i believe. >> only if that justice results in the arrest or charges being fired against officer wilson? is that what it's going to take? >> yes. he ain't been arrest. hold him accountable for what he did. >> mr. brown, do you have faith in the system in this matter? >> yes, i do. >> do you think it's worked so far? >> no. >> so what gives you the faith
it will work eventually? >> eventually justice will prevail. >> i want to ask you about the autopsy that was conducted on behalf of your family. i don't want to go into great detail, but we do know he was shot six times. did you learn what you think you needed to know from that autopsy that gives you a clearer picture of what happened to your son that night? >> no. >> what more do you need to know? >> why. >> why. >> why. what was the cause for that? excessive force. >> i want to ask you about -- >> nobody deserves this. >> let me ask you about that force, and let me bring ben in on this. they said police shootings are
different from other shootings because officers by law are authorized to use force. you have to determine whether the level of force in each case was appropriate or excessive. ben, based on what you saw in that autopsy performed by dr. bodden, are you confident this was excessive force? >> i think clearly this was excessive force, matt. in fact, you look at the autopsy, the witness accounts when he put his hands up and surrender and all the witnesses say he continued to shoot, it's going to be an issue that comes before this prosecution praying that he is arrested that the jury will have to decide what was necessary force used. all the witnesses say it seemed like an execution-style murder. you can't do this to our children the broad daylight.
>> ms. mcspadden and mr. brown, you're looking for justice for your son. do you think this continuing violence in the streets of ferguson runs the risk of overshadowing that search for justice? in some ways, does it detract from justice for your son? >> no. no. >> i think that it does somewhat. because it is a distraction, but we won't let it distract us to the point where we lose focus. we have to remain focused and we have to remain strong and the violence needs to stop. when justice is prevailed, it may regain the trust in the locals. but right now it's really out of control. >> we need to keep the focus on michael brown jr. that's who we need to keep the focus on.
michael brown jr. >> mr. brown, ms. mcspadden, ben, thank you very much for your time this morning. i appreciate it. >> thank you. >> thank you. a dangerous new wildfire is raging in california this morning near yosemite. the flames burning near a propane company. and now leading to evacuation orders for 13,000 homes and businesses. now standing by with what the firefighters are dealing with is al. >> we'll show you what we're looking at. just to the east we've got monsoonal moisture making its way into the southwest. but there'sat's not going to ma in where they need it the most. a high danger in central and southern california. also extreme to exceptional drought for about the entire state of california. there's no relief in sight. no rain in sight. the jet stream is way up to the north. and so that's not helping.
and then the other big story we're watching in the southeast, this upper level high pressure. going to be watching temperatures rise up into the upper 90s. 92 in houston and atlanta. with humidity levels that are going to bring the heat indexes well over 100. it will top out by friday, but there's a lot of dangerous heat especially for the elderly and the young throughout a good portion of the southeastern plains. >> thanks, al. natalie has the latest on the pentagon's mission in iraq. >> that's right. this impact is now being felt as islamic militants were driven from mosul. bill is in erbil, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. identify just come from the top of mosul dam, newly liberated. it's the biggest in iraq.
and this is the sigte of the first victory over militants here in iraq. it was won by u.s. air power and kurdish fighters. the ground is littered with destroyed isis vehicles. they are on the run. kurdish fighters celebrating a rare victory over islamic militants. they displayed the ieds and booby traps they had planted. but it was one tube from the war. more than 30 times in recent days. >> with our support, iraqi and kurdish forces took a major step forward by recapturing the largest dam in iraq near mosul. if that dam was breached, it could have proven catastrophic. >> reporter: their fire power has tipped the balance of this
battle inflicting a significant defeat on isis. this is the first time the seemingly unstoppable advance of isis has not only been halted but we versed. refugees are deeply grateful that the u.s. and kurdish troops are forcing isis back. the militants killed this little girl's sister. without america, says her father, we never would have pushed them away. they have lost everything. but one small comfort is that their enemies have now lost ground and perhaps a crucial battle. the president saying there it could have been catastrophic had isis kept control of the dam. because of the fear they might have blown it up leaving a tsunami cascading for baghdad and threatening the lives of tens of thousands. it's now out of their hands. the big question, will this turn the tide against isis or was
this one isolated victory? >> thank you, bill. iranian negotiators extended the truce for another 24 hours. it came before a cease-fire was coming to an end. they're still trying to reach a long-term deal in the gaza strip. a community on edge this morning after police uncovered a mass shooting plot at a high school. pasadena police arrested two teenagers who planned to kill three staff members and gun down as many students as possible. the suspects did not have any weapons but police say they were trying to get them. the school staffer noticed something suspicious, that's when he called police. school is scheduled to resume on thursday. a frightening scene in los angeles monday night when an suv plowed through a crowded pizza shop. at least seven people were hurt including a 5-year-old boy who
is in critical condition after suffering a serious head injury. the cause of the crash is still under investigation. and on a lighter note, "mad men" star jon hamm couldn't have been happier monday night throwing out the first pitch at a st. louis cardinals game. he grew up a die hard cardinals fan. great to have ozzie smith on the end of the pitch. a little short of the plate there. he did get his own bobble head. so all good. it.e told me last week, i wl i may airmail it, but i will not bounce it. >> that is the hardest thing to do. there's so much pressure on you. >> absolutely. >> like 50 cent up there trying to throw. remember that one? >> all right, jon. well done. let's show you what we've got happening today for you. risk of strong storms up in the upper midwest from parts of illinois all the way into

>> reporter: you'll excuse alaskans this summer if they're seeing double. but it's not the normal double talk from politicians. meet dan sullivan. >> i am the original dan sullivan. >> reporter: popular anchorage mayor in shoe in for governor. the only problem, dan sullivan's name appears on the ballot under dan sullivan. >> when i introduced him there he looked around saying wait a minute, i thought this was my fund raiser. >> reporter: still some voters are having trouble keeping track. >> one's old and has a combover. he's the governor one, i think. >> newer guy is running for senate, right? >> exactly. >> one of my employees the other day said i heard you on the debates last night. well, i'm not in debates. >> i hope they have pictures on them. >> maybe call one daniel. >> stick a middle initial in
there. >> reporter: both candidates passed on that option. the key letters here may not be "a" and "s" but "r" and "d." so is america's biggest state big enough for two dan sullivans? >> absolutely. >> we did send the other campaign an invoice for $100,000 for using my name for campaign services. we haven't seen a check yet. >> we might have an invoice larger for him because of all the advertising that's gone into the senate race. >> reporter: they're pretty good sports. we had to ask a simple question. could they actually be related. it turns out the mayor dan sullivan, a popular pub owner in anchorage is into genealogy and he offered to go back to and do research. as he put it, pub by pub. >> that's a nice assignment.

carolyn wozniacki. some credited his success to the ending of that relationship and a chance to focus on his golf game. what did you mean by that? >> that was taken out of context. what i meant was it's not directly related in any way. i may or may not have a little bit more time on my hands, but that doesn't mean this is why i'm playing great golf. you know, regardless of whether i'm in a relationship or not, i feel i'm capable of this golf. >> reporter: with mcilroy's game now where he wants it, he's able to enjoin the perks of superstardom. like dropping by fallon with tiger woods. even hitting the driving range later that night at a nike event. does that scare you to get the

what the faa says is a reoccurring problem in this country. the illegal use of drones. they say they could be jeopardizing your safety every time you fly. and this morning there's a new concern. terry sanders has the story this morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. i'm in florida where marksmen like to take aim at these. they're called clay pigeons. but now there's a new twist on this sport where folks are taking aim on drones could be illegal. old school skeet shooting meets new world drones. but the faa says these shooted drone gatherings are illegal. an investigate came badge in hand who asked we not identify him as he was there to shut them down.

toxic chemicals often used in the window caulking of older schools. it can leech into dirt, dust, and air and can over time can cause cancer and immune system problems. >> pcb disrupted the function of hormones in our bodies. especially thyroid hormones. they can cause inability for children to perform well in school. >> reporter: when malibu teachers had worries about their health, they tested in ten random classrooms. four came back over the federal limit for pcbs. did you just assume the district and/or your school would say let us get right on that, we want to clear it up. don't worry. >> absolutely. >> reporter: and the district says it is. the school is planning to remove the caulking in those four rooms. and do periodic monitoring of
air and dust for pcbs in every classroom. it says so far tests show no elevated levels. but many parents feel that's not enough. >> the problem is for me is that they haven't tested the source. >> reporter: so the malibu school district says we did test the air and the dust in the other classrooms and we're good. we're going to take out the caulking in the four. everything else is safe. let's go to school. >> right. and i think that air testing is a great piece of the puzzle. unless they're testing every day, how do i know every day it's safe for my kid? >> reporter: some experts say while air and dust testing is a good way to determine pcb exposure, levels can vary week to week depending on conditions. >> in the short-term it may be appropriate to do monitoring, but in the long-term, schools need to eradicate the pcbs from these building materials. >> reporter: and it's not just in malibu. how to handle pcbs has become a
national controversy for schools. under federal law, they're not required to test for pcbs at all. >> why wasn't there follow-up testing done -- >> reporter: at a rally last week crawford offered to pay herself for all the caulk testing at malibu high. >> i look ten years down the line. what if my kid, god forbid, had a problem? how could i live with myself if i knew that it was a possibility and i still sent them to school there? >> reporter: in a statement the school says ensuring our students are safe and healthy is the first priority. and using federal epa standards, our schools are safe for students and employees. and the epa agreed. saying the district's plan address this human exposure pathway of greatest concern. namely air, dust, and soil. and until those tests show a problem, epa does not recommend additional testing of caulk. you have as of this morning
decided to take your kids out. are you out of this fight? >> absolutely not. this is not a malibu issue. this is really an issue in a lot of older schools. i just think the laws need to be changed. >> reporter: well, crawford and hundreds of other parents want congress to require all schools built from the '50s through the '70s to test for pcb. how they fix the problem is still up to debate. malibu schools says they will continue to monitor for pcbs and will take action if they find any problems come up. this story is far from over. >> thank you very much, maria. important story. >> no question about it. coming up, you're going to love her. jennifer hudson live in concert saying hi to her fans and getting ready to jam

yesterday at age 96. he was a longtime voice of "snl." 38 season, he missed only one season. lorne michaels said every year all the cast members couldn't wait to hear their names announced by him. he got his first job as a radio announcement in 1944. had a lifetime contract here at nbc. on november 22nd, 1963 he broke the news of jfk's assassination to viewers here in new york on wnbc. >> back in the day, staff announcers, they were literally in an announcer's lounge. announcers had to sit in the booth for eight hours almost at a time. and he was -- you know, there was a group of the best voices at nbc. he was our staff announcer at wnbc for live at 5:00 which was kind of cool. >> i loved your tweet yesterday.
you said 1983 my first day on air don pardo said my name in the live at 5:00 open, he smiled and said i punched it for you. yes! let's listen to it. we found it. >> from wnbc tv new york, this is live at 5:00 with al roker with weather. >> that was it. he was a consummate professional. >> i loved they had the announcer right there on set with all of you. >> an old rca microphone. he was a classic. he used to bike to work every day. he was just an iconic character. but so low key and such a gentleman. >> he truly was such a gentleman. in fact, my story -- actually my husband's story. i had just gotten my job at msnbc. my husband happened to be riding the ferry next to this sweet older gentleman and started talking to him. he was like i know this voice.
he mentioned we just moved here from connecticut. my wife just started msnbc. i work at nbc, what's your wife's name. he said wish your wife a wonderful time there. it's been a fantastic career. he said what's your name? i swear i know you. i'm don pardo. so he said your name in some way. >> people say the moment he says your name and you walk out on "snl," it's career stuff. we're thinking of him today. >> thank you, don pardo. >> absolutely. so last night i was out. i got to interview rory mcilroy. >> refere >> a late night. >> yeah we were hanging out. he's won three tournaments just in the last month including two majors. the last one at the pga championship. he talked about his recent success. there's been some talk. so he was engaged to caroline
wozniacki key. they broke up in may. there was some talk including from him at the pga that he said he's had more time, frankly, to focus on his game. but he wanted to clear that up. >> he said it was spun wrong by the media. here's what he said. >> that was taken out of context and spun by the media. what i was trying to say was it's not directly related in any way. like i may or may not have a little bit more time on my hands these days, but that doesn't mean to say this is why i'm playing great golf. you know, i -- regardless of whether i'm in any sort of relationship or not, i feel like i'm capable of this golf. >> what he said when we talked was he was sad. through sorrow he found his peace on the golf course. he lived there and went to the gym constantly. that's what he meant to say by that. >> refocusing. >> yeah. i like he cleared that up. >> i wasn't clear, did nike have anything to do with that?
>> how did you know? >> i'm not sure. >> it's the new vapor clubs from nike. yeah. >> you hung out with him. you got a chance to know him. you said he was a nice guy. >> he's a good guy. everybody says he's the next tiger. that's a lot of pressure to put on somebody. he said there's no next tiger. what he did will never be duplicated. i just want to be the first rory mcilroy. >> still people will say he could be the man. >> he's that good. >> we were both creeped out by this next one. >> i think everybody was creeped out. >> vivid view of this in our heads. not because we're women, because we're both really chicken, i think. this guy is in boston. this is crazy. a woman's home and then she sees -- look at that. >> at least she caught him in the act. >> on a surveillance tape. she's got one of these $150 cameras that i recently purchased. it hooks up to an app.
and they're asking folks in the boston area, do you know or recognize this individual whose face is so clear which is what natalie's point was earlier. >> yeah. >> hopefully they will identify him. apparently a number of people have reported different incidents throughout the neighborhood. someone saying they saw a guy that said he was looking for his puppy in a wooded area around these apartments. but you can understand why women and men to al's point, would be rattled by this. take a listen. >> and i saw that it was a face, it was instantly i wanted to throw up. and it was a moment of panic. this creep or this man took that from me. the sense of home that i had in my apartment. i don't know if i could get that feeling back. that sense of security and i do want to go home. i miss being home. i miss sleeping in my own bed. >> she says the reason --
>> she wouldn't be able to go back home. she's held up until this guy is found. >> she set it all up because she felt -- you know when you have that feeling there's somebody over your shoulder? she had that feeling. she said she finally took action and lo and behold caught him in the act. the way he peeks in and he goes back and peeks in again. you know that they're going to catch this guy. >> i hope so. >> look at that picture. very clear. well, here is a story of great inspiration. i think we need a little uplift around here. last night little league world series. from rhode island their team ended their run but their manager wouldn't let the loss get them down. instead he had these great words of inspiration and advice for his team. take a listen. >> everybody, heads up high. heads up high. let's talk for a moment here. i got to see your eyes, guys.
okay. there's no disappointment, okay, in your effort, in the whole tournament, in the whole season. it's been an incredible journey. okay? look at the score. 8-7. okay? 12-10 hits. came to the last out, we didn't quit. that's us! b boys, that's us. the only reason why, okay, i'll probably end up shedding a tear is because this is the last time i'm going to coach you guys. but i'm going to bring back something, okay, that no other team can provide but you guys. and that's pride. okay? pride. >> that is so awesome. you all want a coach like that in your life and you want your kids to have coaches like that. great words of wisdom for the team. by the way, as you heard, they lost. it was 8-7 so it was a valiant effort. they lost to a chicago team.
>> these are the days i wish they didn't take score. i know. i know. >> not everybody gets a tro if i. >> i know. i have always been against that. like, come on, someone win. i ran track, so someone's got to win and lose. but when i saw that, i was like why do they have to score them? >> it's a life lesson. >> i know it is. >> there's so much to be learned in losing in life. >> i know. >> try being a weather man. you learn about losing. almost every day. >> it's your birthday eve! >> something happens. you don't get it right. but the good news is, nobody blames you. here's what you've got going on. we basically have this front pushing through a good portion of the upper midwest into the midwest. we are looking at thunderstorms through kansas city, chicago as well. we'll see them redevelop in chicago later today. temperatures getting into the 80s. kansas city, though, the heat
and humidity. big, big story. we're going to be following that over the days and weeks to come. i should say the days to come. look at the thunderstorms firing up again today. detroit into indianapolis, chicago behind that. anywhere from one to an inch and a half of rain. detroit, they do not need any more after all those torrential downpours they got late that's what's going on aroun . good tuesday morning, everyone. should be another nice day today for our tuesday. a mix of sun and clouds, winds remaining light and a little breezy downing on the shore. a dry day for wednesday, the showers and storm return by thursday, could see a chance also on friday, but look at these numbers, they go from the mid 80s partly sunny skies for saturday and sunday. >> and that's your latest
weather. >> thank you, al. >> essence magazine, tamron's interview with her long-time stylist johnny wright. a guy we've gotten to know around here. they talk about tamron's signature look. i didn't know you've been together for 18 years. >> yeah. he's been my hair stylist since he was 17. we talk about the bond that women have -- and men -- with the person who cutting or styles their hair. johnny was a 17-year-old kid who came up to me in chicago. he said i saw you on tv on the morning show, i had a dream i did your hair and can i do your hair? i do hair in my mother's basement. i said absolutely not. and i said, kid, listen. you can do it once and if you mess it up, you'll never do hair again. as if i had power. he was 17. he did my hair and we've been fantastic friends and he's an amazing stylist. until the first lady of the
united states stole him from me. i'm not angry. he still does my hair. but it is about a bond and growing. i think people can relate to it, especially women with hair stylists. >> he's a great guy. >> he's a cool guy. thank you to essence for shining a light on him. coming up next, jennifer hudson. she's been putting on a show for us out on the plaza this morning. take a little break from the stage to come on inside and talk to us before she heads out for one more number. jennifer is next. this is a woyeah!esitating on a life-changing decision. at university of phoenix, we- we know going back to school is a big decision. that's why we offer many first year students with limited to no college experience a risk-free period. so you can commit to your education with confidence. get started at phoenix.edu

welcome back to "today." it's tuesday morning, august 19th, 2014. we have the number one app right now by tom hanks. it mimics the sound when you type on your device with typewriter keys. he said he was inspired by the clicks and the ding as it moves to the next line. >> it does have this which is better than the auto correction. you get to the end it dings like the old typewriter. >> there's another mode if you go in, it doesn't autocorrect.
so it's almost like you're using whiteout to try and go back. >> many sitting around saying whatever happened to the sound? i love that. that's adorable. >> debra's got an aunt, an older aunt who's over a hundred and she has an old typewriter. leila started playing and said what's that. had no idea. >> that was a required class when i was in high school. >> now it's keyboarding with computers. >> you can get that on itunes just for the ipad. it's called hanx writer. >> my kids were watching a movie this weekend and were like what's that thing? a typewriter. i feel so old. >> al, what's going on outside? >> let's show you what we've got happening right now. for today we are looking at some pretty warm weather down through the south, the southeast as well.
temperatures getting into the 80s and 90s. higher humidity. so that's going to be a big problem. that's going to last right on into tomorrow. gulf coast into the mid-atlantic states, that hot weather is going to be a big problem. so we're looking at showers and thunderstorms. around the area. plenty of sunshine through the northeast tomorrow and a gorgeous day in l.a. tomorrow. high of 79 that's what's going on around good tuesday morning, i'm meteorologist ted florendo, a mix of sun and clouds, still staying comfortable, winds remaining light from the east. a little breezy down the shore, another dry day for wednesday, the showers and storms return by thursday, could see a chance also on friday, but look at these numbers, they go from the mid 80s, they drop a little, near 80 degrees as we head through the weekend.
partly sunny skies for saturday and sunday. piece of video on youtube? check out jerry lewis on the typewriter. classic. we've looked around and collected the hottest apps out there. >> from health to safety to shopping and almost all of them are free. natalie morris has all of the details. good morning, natalie. >> good morning. >> first app is great if you're trying to get pregnant or in some cases maybe if you just want to sort of time things out and know your cycle. >> right. or trying not to get pregnant. this is called glow. it's sort of a women's health app. it tracks your ovulation cycles and tells you when is a good time to maybe try and conceive or maybe when is a good time to try not to conceive. now you can partner up with your spouse or your partner and they can see your ovulation cycle. so here i have my husband who i made download the app and he'll know when is my cycle coming.
so that way fertility becomes a couple's responsibility, not just my responsibility. because if there's a baby, both of our responsibility, right? >> right. you get it on. >> that's your app. get it on app. >> he says he likes to see when i ovulate to know when to steer clear of me which i did not appreciate. >> this one is important. this summer we've heard terrible story of kids dieing in the back of hot cars. there's an app called precious cargo. >> a lot of people say they accidentally left their child behind it's because they're out of their routine. this will help you remember you have the baby in the car. maybe it wasn't your turn to drop the kid off that day and you did. so you set a reminder. and it works with the blue tooth in your car. so when you disconnect from that
bluetooth, like did you take the kid with you. it sounds like something you wouldn't forget, but there are people forgetting. >> look back and check. well worth it. >> there's another app out there when the seat is still connected and it shouldn't be, it reminds you there's someone in the back. people are working on that. >> and there are more little gadgets for that kind of thing. because sometimes they fall asleep and it is easy to zone out especially if you had no sleep like i didn't because my son had bloody noses. it all happens. we all get a little loopy. >> let's move to lighter apps. this one is called we for the networking world. >> in tinder you see someone's photo. this is like that but to see if they're interesting professionalally. it takes your location and says this person you might want to network with. you can chat with them in
realtime if you'd like and maybe you can take that networking offline. and it's helpful if maybe you don't get invited to as many parties as you would like and would like to meet these people. >> not the same as tinder but she likes that as well. natalie loves the bargain. >> i do. i love to shop. >> the next app is called worth it. what does it do? >> it allows you to track deals for things you want to buy but don't want to play the current price for it. so you can search for things. for example, boots or back to school supplies. and it will track that item for you and notify you when it goes down. it tracks all sites on the web. maybe not just amazon or nordstrom. it will find it and you will get a notification. >> i will get that when i'm off my detox. thanks so much. coming up next, do you want your boss' job? you may be shocked at what the majority of men and women have

back now with the results of a surprising poll. time magazine asked read toers weigh in on issues of life, work, and their definitions of success. >> here to tell us what they found out is "time" editor nancy gibbs and the editor at real simple. >> what are these issues that your readers kind of came together on in dealing with this? >> we wanted to explore not only how they defined success, but what qualities, what personal qualities contribute to it. most interestingly looking at whether it changes through people's lives with what you're caring about through age. >> how many women and men were
polled? >> a thousand women. the focus was really women. we decided to throw 300 men in the mix. >> i love that. just for good measure. >> sorry, al. to see if there were significant gender differences with the definitions. there were in a couple of places. >> success with age. what's interesting it seems like as you get older, the importance of success starts to dwindle a bit. >> it does. what's interesting is overall more women than men said success was important to them. but the definition changes. women in their 20s, it's more about their careers, doing well at work, financial stability. >> 73% say it's important. >> very important to them. that's right. as you get into your 30s and 40s, it starts to change, become more personal. and by the time women are in their 50s and 60s, they take much more about spirituality and their friendships. >> doesn't that make sense? >> it does. >> i like the fact that woman never gets out of the chair. the whole time. >> speaking of more things, readers were asked do you want
your boss' job. roughly three quarters of both men and women would not want their boss' job. but if offered, the men would take it anyway. fewer of the women would. >> yes. good news for bosses. many women when we looked at correlations between definitions of success and satisfaction, it seems to be more important to women than men they found value in their job, that they enjoyed what they were doing. whereas financial reward and stability was more important to men. which explains why more men would take the job. >> what i found interesting in the poll, success for women that the top three responses, accomplishing your goals and dreams, being at peace, and having financial stability. i would have thought family would fall in that top three. >> although having children is a very important part of it. what was striking was that for women, it kept on coming back,
this sense of purpose of having meaning in your life. if the single biggest gap was that, that did not rate as nearly high as it did for women. >> they rated financial stability number one, men did. >> you did ask women if it's more important to enjoy what they do or make more money which was along the lines what you said. >> it was interesting. in both cases, 2/3 of men and women all say enjoying your work is more important than making the most money you can. >> that's actually kind of gratifying in a sense. >> it is. >> people are smarter than we think they are. or wiser maybe. right? >> but it seems like -- my dad says -- just common sense. a lot of these are passed along and gender doesn't matter. i love reading this. i have something in common with all these people. >> thank you so much. >> and thank you for picking me
